Olav - Now we have ancient DNA testing and plenty of ancient DNA data, and that tells the story.  Read David Reich's book at least. Reich is the foremost ancient DNA researcher in the world toda...

Again, no offense, but I think you're making something over-complicated that is pretty straightforward and simple, evidently in an effort to make R1b-L21 far older than it really is. Please read Da...

Post: RE: Tracking the Origin of R1b-M343

It would probably be helpful if we knew what is on the line from R-M207 leading to R2-M479 upstream of R2-M479. M479, at ~13,000 BC, is a little late for there to be nothing between it and M207. Its N...

Since Vasilevka 4 from Ukraine (sample VSL004 from Posth et al, 2023) is roughly the same age as the HGs at the Iron Gates, I don't think it's unreasonable to see R1b-V88 as an HG haplogroup moving fr...

I guess the " ~7,000-year-old farmer from Iberia" is Els Trocs, sample I0410, who was V88. We know PF6323 (the father clade of V88) was evidently the first Y-DNA R1b group to move west into peninsular...

Of course, Doggerland foundered beneath the waves long long before R1b-L21 ever existed or any kind of R1b arrived in peninsular Europe.
